Debit Card Progress Update

What are we building?

Last year we embarked on a journey to create the best crypto rewards card around. Today, we are happy to announce that the StormX Debit Card is almost ready to enter the Beta testing phase. The Alpha testing has progressed nicely with only a few pieces left to complete.

So, what have we done?

  • Completed Internal Debit Card Alpha for company testing.
  • Completed development of all design and mobile development of the Debit Card Beta application.
  • Completed various compliance certifications to ensure we are safe and secure.
  • Internally tested purchases, KYC, and virtual card creation.

And... what is in progress?

  • Test the virtual card with our partners.
  • Design and development of physical cards.
  • Engineer the cashback reward system.

What happens after beta launch?

After beta launch we will work on continuously rolling out the card to users on the waitlist. At the same time, we also plan on adding more cashback offers through our partners so you can earn more while shopping at your favorite stores.

Unfortunately, despite the planning and work we’ve gone through in the past year, the physical cards will not be ready for launch due to manufacturing delays. However, worry not - users will still be able to use their virtual card to shop online or in-person using their Apple, Google and Samsung Pay.

How are we able to handle all this work?

We’ve doubled the size of our engineering team (hooray!) in the past few months to help speed up development while most other crypto companies are down sizing during the bear market. We see this as an opportunity to prepare for even more customers coming onto the crypto space.

Lastly, we’ve hired a talented Head of Card Operations to own the development of all card programs at StormX.

Don't forget, if you're in the US but have not yet pre-registered for the debit card, it's still not too late to do so! Simply open up your favorite Crypto Cashback app (StormX) and sign-up to the waitlist using the card tab on the bottom of your screen!
